You've deleted things, probably even things you didn't mean to. Did you know that there are ways to recover your files that even someone who doesn't understand the importance of backing up could employ?

It didn't take long for Naheed Nenshi to run into his first major setback as mayor. The southeast C-Train line he so fervently promised during his campaign is proving difficult to attain. Currently the amount of funding allocated for transit will not be enough to finish the southeast line for another 10 years while making necessary improvements to existing public transit routes.

  The meaning of Remembrance DayPDF files may take a moment to load

Remembrance Day is a day to remember and thank the men and women who have served our country during times of war and peace.

Touring is usually thought of as the most gruelling part of a musician's career, but for Wintersleep touring is an integral part of their livelihood. Mike Bigelow, Loel Campbell, Tim D'eon, Paul Murphy and Jon Samuel have all conditioned and trained for a marathon of touring that started in 2007. These Nova Scotia natives are some of the hardest working musicians in the business.

  Letter: What makes community radioPDF files may take a moment to load

[Re: New community radio station focuses on community content, Nov. 4 by Andy Williams]

While I am encouraged that another radio club has been established by a dedicated group of music hobbyists in a garage in SE Calgary to have some fun playing commercially released songs that XL Radio might not be playing this month, I do take issue with writer Andy Williams's failure to do some more in-depth research about Beaver FM.
